, it expired in 2004, the law in effect banned 20 different assault weapons manufactured in the u.s. also banned the manufacture of high-capacity magazines, the ones that hold more than ten bullets. there were plenty of loopholes, though, gun manufacturers could make minor modifications and then rename them, in a sense making them legal. also, there was no ban on the import of assault weapons from overseas. you see, the ban was only for american-made guns. any guns or high-capacity magazines manufactured before the ban could still be owned and used legally. when it comes to gun bans, the states have taken the lead. california went full speed ahead after a shooting in elementary school in stockton in 1989. they banned the manufacturer, transport, import, or sale of assault weapons, also now bans sales to felons and drug addicts and requires safety training, a ten-day waiting period and outlaws those high-capacity magazines that hold more than ten bullets. other states also limit who can own guns and guns that can be carried with or without a permit. how prevalent are they really? well, the
